Considering that the stuff I'm programming has to run in an emulator, the overhead of an emulator + vm would make it horribly slow. Also, I have tried OSX in VirtualBox, and it's much slower than on my 4-year-old mac that I have laying around.

Also, 3 partitions were in use because 1 was for the bootloader, 1 was for the recovery partition, and one was for Windows. I don't want to wipe out the system recovery partition, or the bootloader partition, because that could cause issues with the system.

Windows 7 automatically creates a 100mb boot partition in order to support Bitlocker AKA whole disk encryption. Vista required the same thing, but did not created the boot partition by default as Windows 7 does.
So you're right from the perspective that he could get rid of it. I've never tried it, but it strikes me that 7's BCD repair option should probably be able to sort the situation out if the partition were to disappear.
